GEOS 6650 - Carbonate Petrology

This course will investigate the genetic origin of carbonate rocks as well as the chemical, physical, and mineralogical changes to these rocks during diagenesis. The impact of these changes on the ability of carbonate rocks to host and transmit fluids (e.g., oil, gas, water) will be a central theme, as will the various types of data and the widely available analytical instrumentation commonly used to study limestone petrogenesis.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: Prerequisites: GEOS 4350 or GEOS 6110 or GEOS 6460 or instructor approval.

Credits: 3 hours

Notes: Open to graduate students only.
